I had a similar experience. I learned Java first, then C#. For a while I was working with both languages. I had a situation occur with a project in each language that required reading and writing XML. I spent two weeks researching (and experimenting with) the multiple libraries for XML processing in Java before I found one that best fit my needs. In C#, there were only two choices (one for processing the entire DOM and one for streaming) and making the choice was obvious.
The issue was that there were hundreds of Java libraries from multiple sources but only the Microsoft official libraries for C#. This was over two decades ago. Things have changed. Research is more efficient. Both languages have matured and are more stable.
